Why You Should Choose a Midwife
Home tends to be the place where we feel most comfortable, relaxed and uninhibited, thus, a desirable environment for birthing.You will feel confident, nurtured and empowered as you labor at home. The continuum of being in labor, giving birth, and snuggling down with your newborn baby in your own environment creates an incredibly peaceful event. As more and more families realize there are alternatives to a conventional hospital birth, they are presented with the two main alternatives, which are home birth or birth center birth. We are available to serve our expectant parents with safe midwifery care in any setting they choose.
If you have had one (primary) prior C-Section we will evaluate, provide VBAC education AND prenatal Midwifery care as well as laborist service in your chosen hospital setting. While Midwives in Louisiana cannot do out of Hospital Home or Birth Center VBACs, we will work closely with your OB to help provide an optimum, safe vaginal delivery if possible. We also provide C-Section preparation classes for mothers facing repeat surgical birth on how to prepare the uterus, the mind and the baby in advance. You should not have to miss out on the comfort, competence and care provided by an experienced Midwife as you prepare for your baby, even if you have suffered through an emotionally difficult birth that resulted in a C-Section. We will help you achieve your normal vaginal birth experience with physicians who trust the benefits of the Midwifery Model of Care.
